aerial beauty

here’s a series of photos from screen captures to celebrate the beauty of headers by some of the top female footballers of the world. I’m always a biig fan of runs down the sides and crosses from either wing into the penalty area. As only an observer, i have no idea how difficult it is to cover someone in front of the goal against these crosses. When the pass is accurate, it’s such a beauty to watch. The power of these headers are just simply amazing. Looks like all the highlights on youtube are wiped out due to copyright, but this series can be seen here (at least for now…).
